Argus Farm Stop v.2
I Spy: November 2017
by Sally Bjork
From the December, 2017 issue
It's "Argus Farm Stop v.2," writes Lorene Sterner. "Our new neighbor ... on Packard just down the street from the Buddhist Temple and Ann Arbor Vacuum!" Like the original Argus on Liberty, writes Ginny Weingate, it is "owned by Kathy Sample and Bill Brinkerhoff," who admired Bill's foresight in planting corn at the new spot "early in the remodeling phase so that the ... stalks would be up for the opening" in August.
Liz Vanwert says she was "pretty sure of the answer based on the picture alone." "The little corner of their unmistakable logo was a big help," notes Lorene Sterner. Joe Palms based his guess on the October Observer article about the building's past as Clague's Market, which mentioned that the original Argus almost ended up in this location.
We received 18 correct entries in November. Our winner, drawn at random, is Marie Krull. "Great place!" she says of Argus. Marie will enjoy her $25 gift certificate at Casey's Tavern.
